Owner description: The Fabulous Fox Theatre first opened in 1929 as a movie palace in William Fox's motion picture empire. The theatre was reopened in 1982, and today it is one of the most exquisite venues in the country to enjoy live touring Broadway shows, concerts, and comedians. We hope you'll visit us for an upcoming show or one of our guided tours!

I traveled to St. Louis last weekend with a friend to see the Broadway tour of Spring Awakening at the Fox Theatre. Although we were rather disappointed with St. Louis in general, the Fox was amazing. We couldn't believe our eyes when we walked into that grand lobby. What an architectural marvel. Never seen anything like it in any city. The program called it Siamese Byzantine, which is a good description.

The auditorium was massive and just as lavish. St. Louis is so fortunate to have this theatre restored and operating. Here in Oklahoma City, our historic theatres were all torn down during an ill-advised 1970s urban renewal project. I will definitely come back to see another show at the Fox.

We were in St. Louis over the Christmas holiday, and we were really looking forward to our visit to the Fox Theater to see Wicked. While the show did not disappoint (it's a must see) the staff and overall customer service at the Fox Theater was terrible. We had to pick up our tickets at Will Call, and the workers at the Box Office could not have been more rude! It was as if we were inconvenicening them by asking for our tickets!!! Once inside, the theater is beautiful, but the crowd control non-exisistent. And don't even try to eat at the grand buffet - there is nothing grand about it . . . . besides the street it is on. At least we had a nice view of the street from our dinner seats, but we were wishing we were at the fun looking restaurant across the street!!
